Default XV-88 idea

do you guys think that the slow but purposeful ability would work great with XV-88's? it most definitely would make them more aggressive.

Anything that would make the battle suit more mobile at all would of course be beneficial. A slow and purposeful XV-88 would probably be over-powered though as even a tiny 3~4 inch move every turn would be enough to maintain cover and readjust fire paths making the XV-88 much more attractive for a lot of players.

Well, actually, the secondary weapon CAN be a Rapid Fire weapon (Plasma Rifle), and with the 4th Ed rules, there's really no downsides of moving and shooting with them.

Hmmm... make it like an upgraded Multi-tracker and have it cost about 15 points and take up a hard point...

Ahem. The Broadside CAN carry M-Trackers, and Target Locks, and all the battlesuit support systems. The hardpoints on a broadside are filled by railguns, SMS or plasma rifles, and one supporst system. Using the plasma rifles gives punchy, rerolling rapid fire for +10pts as opposed to the 24 points on a Crisis.

It would, I thought of it too, but I think there should be some sort of a downside as well.

They could for example not use shield generators and SaP, or not be able to multi-track. Otherwise, they would become too powerful, and opponents will start objecting(at least until GW gives us the word).
